Abstract Studies were conducted in 1997and 1998 to evaluate the effects of three particle film formulations consisting of kaolin and adjuvants on neonate larvae, ovipositing adult females, and eggs of the codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L.). Neonate larval walking speed, fruit discovery rate, and fruit penetration rate on apple host plants coated with particle films were significantly lower than on host plants without particle films in laboratory assays. Females oviposited less on host plants… Expand
Repellency of a kaolin particle film to potato psyllid, Bactericera cockerelli (Hemiptera: Psyllidae), on tomato under laboratory and field conditions.
TLDR
Kaolin particle film treatment may be a useful alternative for management of potato psyllids under field conditions after laboratory and field experiments evaluated the repellency of kaolin particles on adults of B. cockerelli. Expand
Egg adhesion of the codling moth Cydia pomonella L. (Lepidoptera, Tortricidae) to various substrates: II. Fruit surfaces of different apple cultivars
In the late growing season of apples, most eggs of the codling moth, Cydia pomonella L. (Lepidoptera, Tortricidae), of the second and third generations are deposited directly on fruits. The appleExpand
Effects of Kaolin Particle Film on Oviposition, Larval Mining, and Infestation of Cotton by Pink Bollworm (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae)
TLDR
The results suggest that kaolin particle film may be useful against pink bollworm, particularly in conjunction with other control tactics. Expand
Effects of a kaolin‐based particle film on oviposition and feeding of gypsy moth (Lep., Lymantriidae) and forest tent caterpillar (Lep., Lasiocampidae) in the laboratory
TLDR
Initial laboratory findings suggest that applying kaolin‐based particle film to forests would present significant challenges; but if these could be surmounted, the technique might assist in the management of gypsy moth but not likely in that of forest tent caterpillar. Expand
RESPONSE OF DIAPREPES ABBREVIATUS (COLEOPTERA: CURCULIONIDAE) TO APPLICATION CONCENTRATIONS OF A PARTICLE FILM
TLDR
Particle films, while effective in the laboratory, may not adhere sufficiently to citrus leaves in the field in Florida to maintain deterrence to Diaprepes root weevils after heavy rains over the entire rainy season when adults are active. Expand
RESPONSE OF DIAPREPES ABBREVIATUS (COLEOPTERA: CURCULIONIDAE) TO APPLICATION CONCENTRATIONS OF A PARTICLE FILM
TLDR
Particle films, while effective in the laboratory, may not adhere sufficiently to citrus leaves in the field in Florida to maintain deterrence to Diaprepes root weevils after heavy rains over the entire rainy season when adults are active. Expand
The effects of kaolin particle film on Plutella xylostella behaviour and development.
TLDR
The results warrant the extension of investigations of kaolin-based particle films to field-based P. xylostella management strategies, as any observed treatment effect was enhanced with an increase in the particle film coverage. Expand
Effects of a Particle Film on Biology and Behavior ofDiaphorina citri (Hemiptera: Psyllidae) and Its Infestations in Citrus
TLDR
Reductions in infestation levels of D.citri in treated trees were attributed to the negative effects of the particle film on the ability of adults to grasp, move, and oviposit, and the suppressive effects of a Surround treatment against adult psyllids were degraded by rain. Expand
Biological and behavioral effects of kaolin particle film on larvae and adults of Chrysoperla carnea (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae)
TLDR
Results indicate that disruption of movement capacity and dislodgement from the plant surface may be the principal negative effects of particle film on C. carnea larvae. Expand
Impacts of seasonal kaolin particle films on apple pest management
Abstract The impact of multiple applications of the kaolin-based particle film M96-018 on the population density of selected pests of apple, Malus domestica (Borkh) (Rosaceae), and their naturalExpand

Effects of a Kaolin-Based Particle Film on Obliquebanded Leafroller (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)
TLDR
Particle film treatments significantly reduced female longevity, mating success, and number of egg masses oviposited compared with moths on untreated apple leaves in sleeve-cages and screen-cage tests, and the negative effects on larval development and survivorship on M96–018-treated foliage did not differ across a fourfold difference in spray application rate.

Monitoring and Characterization of Insecticide Resistance Codling Moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) in Four Western States
TLDR
Female moths were as susceptible as male moths in bioassays with treated adhesive, and little variability in susceptibility to esfenvalerate was found among populations within each state. Expand
Survey of Azinphosmethyl Resistance in Codling Moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) in Washington and Utah
A bioassay in which azinphosmethyl was incorporated into the adhesive of a sex pheromone trap was developed to detect resistance in populations of male codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L.). ExperimentsExpand
Progress Toward Liquid Formulations of Particle Films for Insect and Disease Control in Pear
TLDR
It is found that prior seasonal applications of particle films in 1997 can carry over into the 1998 season to suppress early season pear psylla oviposition and a shift from hydrophobic to hydrophilic particles makes it possible to more easily formulate and disperse the particles in water so that conventional spray equipment can be used.

Control of Codling Moth in Apple and Pear with Sex Pheromone-Mediated Mating Disruption
TLDR
Spatial analysis of fruit injury showed that fruit injury was aggregated and moth movement within orchards was limited and not influenced by the presence of pheromone. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that the hydrophobic particle film concept could offer broad spectrum protection against arthropod pests and diseases in certain agricultural crops. Expand
